Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 15, 2009
ChartHouse Learning announced today that three local schools would be receiving the world-renowned FISH! For Schools products to help improve their classroom culture. In all, the three schools received over $25,000 worth of FISH! For Schools products.
FISH! For Schools helps educators build stronger relationships with students. It inspires students to want to learn and reinvigorates staff making a positive difference for kids.
The schools receiving the FISH! For Schools products are Ames Elementary School in St. Paul, MN, and Lucy Craft Laney School and the Urban League Academy, both in Minneapolis, MN.
John Christensen, Playground Director/CEO of ChartHouse Learning, said the decision to donate the products to the schools was an easy one. "The donation of these FISH! For Schools products here in our backyard is our way of paying it forward by being there for these schools. I hope this program will inspire the staff and students to do good things for other people, and help make our community an even more incredible place to live," Christensen said. "We wanted to touch the hearts of children and educators right here in our community. These schools were selected because we know that they are all dedicated to their mission of creating great citizens, and this was something we could do to help them on that journey."
The schools will receive both components of FISH! For Schools - one aimed at students through a Classroom Experience, and the other targeting staff development with the Guided Journey.
ChartHouse plans to continue making donations of FISH! For Schools products to other area schools in the future, choosing schools based on their need, and their commitment to serving their community.
